FORMER HOUSE SPEAKER GINGRICH JOINS NJECPAC & NJ-IEC IN ENDORSING ROLAND STRATEN FOR CONGRESS.
As our readers know the NJECPAC and member organization NJ-IEC have both endorsed Roland Straten for Congress.
Careful consideration was given to the voting record of his opponent, incumbent Congressman Bill Pascrell. Members of the NJECPAC Board of Governors have repeatedly visited the Congressman’s Washington Office to speak to him about the issues that are important to Electrical Contractors and Small Business to no avail.
Roland Straten’s positions are aligned with the positions of NJECPAC on small business issues effecting Electrical Contractors and Small Businesses alike.
We are proud to have former House Speaker Gingrich join us in endorsing Roland Straten for US Congress.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE,
FORMER HOUSE SPEAKER GINGRICH ENDORSES STRATEN
“I’m pleased that my candidacy has been endorsed by former Speaker of the House Gingrich,” Straten said. “Now it’s time to retire Bill Pascrell, who votes for what’s best for Obama and Pelosi, not for the people here in
’s 8th District.” New Jersey

“Governor Christie made the right decision today by stopping construction of the new Hudson River Rail Tunnel. Our Governor understands we cannot spend money we do not have and New Jersey must start living within its means.
“A financial audit, conducted by the federal government, estimated that cost overruns on the project could top more than $5 billion. New Jersey taxpayers and tollpayers would have been the ones held responsible to pay this multi-billionaire dollar bill. Additionally, the design of the project, as it stood, was inefficient and ineffective towards solving the long-standing capacity problems that are affecting rail travel into and out of Manhattan from New Jersey.
“With this decision, Governor Christie is protecting the people of New Jersey from higher taxes, higher tolls and more debt.”

Congress “de-lists” cell phones: what does that mean for employer-provided cell phones?
On September 27, The President signed into law the Small Business Jobs Act (H.R. 5297) (SBJA). Hidden in this legislation is much-needed relief to all businesses (small or large) and their employees concerning the business and personal use of employer-provided cell phones, including personal digital assistants (PDAs) with mobile communication features1 and smartphones (collectively, cell phones).2 This provision removes cell phones from the Internal Revenue Code’s definition of “listed property” for taxable years retroactive to December 31, 2009.
What does this change mean to you?
